Bow Hunts in South Africa

Bow hunts in South Africa are one of the greatest hunts that a bow hunter can experience.  The sheer abundance of game and multitude of differing terrains offers endless possibilities for planning a bow hunting adventure.   Bow hunts South Africa are also one of the most affordable bow hunts for the international bow hunter.  Nowhere else can you take the same amount of magnificent trophies as can be taken on plains game bow hunts in South Africa.  With South Africa having over 25 million animals, it is hard to leave this country empty handed.  South Africa allows the use of all types of archery equipment including crossbows.  South Africa does have minimum poundage requirements for bows depending on the class and size of animal that will be hunted.

For plains game, South Africa is unrivaled by any other country.  The number of available species is mind-boggling and due to strong conservation policies, the quantities of animals that are available stretch one’s imagination.  South Africa’s game ranching industry has developed into one of the world’s greatest hunting destinations for the archer.  Several of these game ranches have converted to bow huntsonly operations andthey offer some of the best bow hunts in the world.  Due to the dry conditions in Northern South Africa, waterhole hunting from blinds has developed into a primary hunting method to facilitate getting archers close to their quarry.  Bow hunts in South Africa’s southern regions require more spot and stalk hunting due to wet conditions.

Bow hunts in South Africa for dangerous game also offer the bow hunter a wide variety of possibilities.  South Africa allows archery equipment to be used for the taking of dangerous game.  Again, minimum poundage requirements are in effect for taking these large and dangerous animals.  A cottage industry has arisen that allows for the hunting of captive-raised lions.  These lions are raised and then released into large hunting preserves of several thousand acres.  South African law requires that the lion be allowed to acclimate to his surroundings for a period of weeks.  Then a hunt is conducted on foot by tracking the lion until a confrontation occurs.  This is an extremely exciting hunt and also can produce lions of exceptional mane qualities.  Bow hunts in South Africa are truly an archers dream


"I spent weeks visiting websites for outfitters in Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, comparing pre-made packages and regular fees. In the end, for a 7-day, six animal hunt with my son as an observer/hunter, John Martins had the best price."

'It was the most exciting hunt I have ever been on. We stalked a small bachelor group for a few days before I shot a mature cape buffalo with my Browning 375 H&H.'

'This was my third hunt with Discount African Hunts and each one has been fantastic.  I don't think I would book my future African hunts with anyone else.'

"I booked the hunt through John Martins, the owner of Discount African Hunts. It was a smooth transaction and he provided me with good and accurate information."

"This 10 day package safari was a fantastic experience. I learned many new hunting skills and made new friends.  I would go back and do it again in a heartbeat.  I'm going back. That says it all. Thanks to Discount African Hunts for setting me up on a fantastic plains game safari."
